Alima Pure Bronzer- reader reviewed and recommended

I am very pleased with the Alima Pure Bronzer ($20) and would recommend this mineral powder. At 54, I shy away from powders because I’ve found that they not only settle into my happy creases (otherwise known as lines or wrinkles), but can also look cakey and make my skin feel tight after a few hours. I prefer a dewey, non-makeup feel. The Alima bronzer didn’t cause either of these. The product comes with a great travel-size half-moon brush, which sweeps the bronzer lightly on my skin and allows for contouring. It was easy to dab the edges with a sponge, making it blend into my skin easily to avoid makeup lines. Also, I haven’t felt like I was wearing a mask; no tight, parched skin.

The other concern I always have with bronzers is looking orange. My skin draws orange from colors that might not do the same on others, but the Alima product hasn’t caused this at all. It looks quite natural, and I’m able to brush the color on lightly so there’s just a hint of bronze. The makeup keeps my skin looking healthy, which is my number one beauty concern. To me, if your skin looks good it doesn’t matter how little makeup you wear. Glowing skin is beautiful.

Again, I’d recommend this bronzer as a good addition to any makeup routine.

Ingredients: Mica (CI 77019), May contain [+/-]: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891)

    Fully agree - this bronzer is everything one would wish for: no oxidation, non-drying, lovely color, easy to use, long-lasting, evens out skin tone. I use the lightest one, Maracaibo, ever since Kristen Arnette's article on blushes - what a great advice that was!
